    I'm 52, I look like I'm 152 and I got carded the other day in Seattle.
    I thanked her.

    I've occasionally gotten people guessing that I'm 22 or 23.

    When I'm staring down the barrel of 35, that feels pretty fucking awesome.

    Luggie, I got carded like five times in Seattle, and I think we're the same age :D

    (There's a law about how they have to verify age in Seattle though, so don't listen to Moddy or I)

    This was at a wine shop. I kept saying, "Hi" to the checkout guy, and he said nothing. I was thinking, what's with this unfriendly F'er?

    Finally he says: "Are you 21?"

    Here's to a great rest of 2008! :D

    That is awesome!

    It'd be even better if you had your baby with you though.

    There's a law EVERYWHERE that they have to verify age. Some places just don't do it.

    I was about to say, what kind of lush would you be hanging out at a bar in the middle of the day? That's a little better. And I think the males of the service industry have thus found the No. 1 effective pickup line ever.

    There is one wine shop near me that does the same thing... first time the 20-something clerk asked me -- with my white hair and all -- I laughed.
    A few weeks later in the same place, the manager looked at me and said "I'm pretty sure you're over 21 but the owners are making us do this for everybody."

    That would be the perfect spot to bust out a fake ID.

    That says you're 18.
